Our family dog passed away suddenly and we wanted our children to have something to hold onto for comfort when they missed him. I loved the amazing wide selection this company has to offer for any kind of animal and how you can personalize them. We got our boys 2 black lab stuffed puppies with a bandana saying our dogs name on it. THEY LOVE THEM AND TAKE THEM EVERYWHERE! The animals are so soft and well made, it has made this rough time for our children a little easier. I will always use this company when choosing any stuffed animals for my children, family or friends.
